    Now what's really cool about these studs is they operate independently of each other, so depending on how you're coming down and where you're stepping, some are gonna grip more some not quite as much. And they actually float within the sole, too, so depending on the surface that you are on, how hard or how soft will really dictate how far these little studs will push in.

Updates to Icebug DTS 3 BUGrip

  • The Icebug DTS3 BUGrip is a trail running shoe that’s created to be more efficient on slippery surfaces. It features a durable rubber compound with a set of carbide spikes to heighten grip on multiple terrain types and conditions.
  • Ethylene vinyl acetate or EVA is the compound that’s used for the midsole unit of this off-road companion. It is an industry-standard foam that offers responsive cushioning and impact protection. Underneath the platform is an ESS stabilizer which prevents in-shoe wobbling while also keeping the midsole steady.
  • Engineered mesh offers soft and breathable support for the foot. TPU overlays are printed onto the silhouette for added protection. A water-resistant coating permits mild exposure to splashes and wet trail conditions.

Icebug DTS 3 BUGrip size and fit

The Icebug DTS3 BUGrip was designed to be true-to-size. It makes use of the standard measurements, particularly regarding length. The available widths are B – Medium for women and D – Medium for men. This running shoe’s semi-curved shape mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Icebug DTS3 BUGrip makes use of a full-length rubber compound. It’s configured to be sturdy and long-lasting. It is responsible for surface traction, as well.

Gripping lugs are patterned across the surface of the outer sole. Some are shaped like pellets while others take the form of the Icebug insect logo. The purpose of these protrusions is to deliver additional traction on tricky terrains.

The BUGrip® technology makes use of 19 carbide spikes that are embedded on some of the rubber protuberances. These add-ons heighten traction on wet surfaces, chiefly snowy or muddy paths.

Midsole

EVA or ethylene vinyl acetate is a cushioning compound that is responsible for carrying the foot throughout the running session. It is also designed to attenuate impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.

The ESS stabilizer is a plate that bolsters the underfoot platform. Its job is to make sure that the foot won’t wobble or twist when traversing uneven terrain.  It also prevents the EVA foam from sagging or breaking down quickly.

Upper

The engineered mesh is a cloth-like material that offers a soft wrap. It has breathing pores that permit environmental air to enter the foot-chamber and maintain ventilation. It quickly takes the shape of the wearer’s foot, thus potentially improving security and overall snugness.

Thin TPU layers are printed directly to the façade of the Icebug DTS3 BUGrip. These overlays reinforce the structure of the upper unit while also helping in the overall security of the runner’s foot.

Weather Shield is a water-resistant coating. It shields the interior of the shoe from mild splashes and exposure to wet conditions.

The interior walls utilize PU foam for medial, lateral cushioning and lockdown.
